    Default Best Ovulation Tests???

    Just wondering what brand of Ovulation Tests people think are the best? I bought Forelife, but don't know how accurate they are as I have had a darker test line than the control line for the past three days! Surely that can't be right?!?! Do people find some brands more accurate than others? Thanks

    I tried the urine ones and never really got a clear positive however last month used the saliva testers and clearly got an ovulation pattern.
    RE-usable also

    I tried Forelife and also got a positive for 3 days then a negitive also had o symptoms on the 2nd day was very confussing. This was my first month using opks so was not sure if that was what happened or not.

    They could be sensitive to lower levels of LH. All of the OPKs have different sensitivities, some can detect LH at quite low levels, which is not ideal for women who have surges that are 'normal' to high. You might need an OPK that is not quite so sensitive so you can more accurately pinpoint O day.

    I found the saliva predictor really unhelpful, got a positive pattern for about a week then stopped using it.

    I've always used the Or@cle Fertility ones (buy the over the net). They were always accurate for me and I fell pregnant using them both times.
